CSHRL celebrates LLM Alumna book launch

In August 2018, former LLM Human Rights Law student Dr Sam Smith, launched her new book ‘Human Rights and Social Care: Putting Rights Into Practice’. The launch was part of the Being Human Conference hosted by C-Change Scotland, the organisation of which Dr Smith is the CEO. Drawing inspiration from the famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote about the importance of rights in those 'small places close to home', the event aimed to give delegates a sense of what is possible in advancing the human rights agenda in the field of social care. A keynote was given by Professor Alan Miller and the conference covered topics including the rights of the child, of women, of older persons and of disabled persons.
